All I Want Fer Christmas to know who swiped Nikolai Khabibulin's glove. I'm sure it would make a nice Xmas gift for a fan. But Goddammit, he needs that glove. Just look at what's happened lately. Two overtime losses in the dying seconds, snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. God, the Blackhawks suck.

It's not all Khabibulin's fault. But he was their biggest off-season signing. A wall with the Lightning (yeah, the "Bulin Wall," yeah yeah) two years ago when they won the Cup and shit. So the Hawks snapped him up with what amounts to a good deal of pride around these parts. But I was never convinced that goaltending was the problem and that a new goalie was the solution. And it would seem I'm right about this one. He's not terrible in game situations, but shows no glove (top shelf lefthand side is going to look good to wristers from now on) and can't make the big save when the game's in the balance. And that's precisely why they got him, for big-save-type impact. He's atypical of the rest of the team, which is young, cheap, and undisciplined. With the emphasis on "cheap." 'Cause look who still owns the team.

Bill Wirtz can go fuck himself. You hear that, Bill? Sell the team, or go fuck yourself.

Your choice.
